wow!

a guest walked into the breakfast room and said she needed to wait 1/2 hour to eat because she had just taken boniva.

then another guest mentioned hot flashes ... her husband retorted 'you mean night sweats - she soaks the bed every night' 

guest entering the room overhead and said 'have you tried depends, dear?  i'm wearing some and you can't even tell!' ohmy ... not that kind of soaking.

all got into this very animated discussion about incontinence, male menopause, fact or fiction ... hormones, biofeedback, viagra ...  and back to female menopause. but one that was hard of hearing kept misunderstanding what was said a little bit which sent the discussion down another road.  

thank goodness no one was offended or shy ... 12 guests all gesturing and talking while i went back and forth, cooking and serving breakfast.  how would i know anything about these issues?

I had a guest the other day who also takes one of those calcium/bone supplements. She said, 'I'm supposed to take it today but then I can't eat. I WANT this breakfast, my bones can wait another day.'

oh dear ... it would be october 3 and you are full up.  well .... they did say they like to plan so maybe they will reserve with you another time ... they are fun, a little unpredictable

... it was not the depends wearer ... it was two couples in a debate (men vs women) over male menopause and viagra and all of that.

Did you ever think that you would be using those words to describe guests???

two couples are headed your way bree.  i gave them your info in case they are looking for a place to stay and not just shop til you drop.  i told them it's best to call ... but you do take walk-ins  ... hope that is correct.  they are lively, all right.

Hopefully not for the weekend...this town is full for the weekend. Tonight, no problem. I checked around to see what the occ was like because I have a bad feeling about one guest. (Actually 2 guests) One called a few weeks ago and wants to put a 3rd person in the room. I told her no. Where? On the floor? 'Oh he won't mind, he's 16.' Right. Parents want the 16 yo sleeping on the floor at the foot of the bed. Anyway, I called around looking for other accommodations for them if they show with 3 guests in the party. Nothing avail for the whole weekend, just tonight & tomorrow at one place at $239/night.

Other party called the other day to cancel one night for this weekend. Sorry. 2 night min. I'm expecting a cancel from her at the last minute when she finds a place that will take her for 1 night.

So which did you send her?  The night sweater, the depends wearer or the pill popper?

I was blessed - I didn't. None of the above, as I said, blessed.
